My phone line got cut...literally.

Post by Stavros »

Well, I've not been on for the past weekend. And here's why.

My driveway is marked as a major road (for some un-Godly reason). A road crew came out to clear away the fallen limbs and cut dead ones to prevent them from falling into our driveway. Well, it just so happens that a pile of bit Pine tree logs had sunken into the ground and actually broke the line. As we all know:

Stavros - Internet = Sad Stavros.

Luckily, about 11 in the morning (maybe noon, I'm not sure) a line technician came by and asked if we had a connection. I looked on the router and the DSL light was solid indicating a connection. And as we all know:

Phone Line Technician + Fixed phoneline = Phone connection/DSL = Happy Stavros.

I hate trees.
